4th Annual Tom Bearson Golf Outing

The 4th Annual Golf Outing was held on July 21, 2018.

We can't thank you all enough for making our 4th annual Tom Bearson Golf Outing a success! THANK YOU to all of the Tom Bearson Foundation board members, the volunteers, our family and friends, and the Sartell community for everything you did to make this day happen.

Next year’s Tom Bearson Foundation Annual Golf Outing is scheduled for Saturday, July 20, 2019 at Blackberry Ridge Golf Course. We can't wait to see you all there!


For those who couldn’t attend, here are some highlights from Tom's special day:

  • Out of the 132 golfers, the 2018 Tom Bearson Golf Outing winners were: Darin Millar, Kim Larson, Brad Heck, and Jim Mahowald! We can't wait to add their names to the granite plaque. Congrats, guys!

  • Per usual, we had a free Bloody Mary bar to get things started, free hot dogs and chips throughout the day (provided by Spartan Nash), a raffle full of themed prizes, along with a silent auction made up of amazing donations to close out the event!

  • This year we had a booze cart rather than cooler, and it was chock-full of various different liquors and fun alcohol-related items. This year's winner was Steve Jacobson, and we're sure this cart and its contents will help fuel many fun events at his house throughout the year!

  • Thankfully, we had another bright and sunny day for the Tom Bearson Golf Outing! We know Tom was there in spirit enjoying the day with us. 

We are so thankful for those who help keep Tom’s memory alive with our event each summer. Specifically, we'd like to thank the Tom Bearson Foundation’s Board of Directors, which includes: Tony and Joyce Tillemans, John and Cheryl Lovitz, Dave and Dana Fischer, Greg and Kelley Neeser, John and Yvette Dockendorf, Tom Bevans, Ryan Walsh, and Rob Schumann. We can never thank you enough for the time, effort, and resources you all put into our Foundation year after year. 


We'd like to say a huge thank you to our main sponsors, Paul Morrison/ReMax and West Central, along with our 50+ other sponsors! Thank you to the 25 gracious volunteers who made this special day possible! The continued support from our community and friends is more than we ever could've hoped for. Thank you to Jim Schmitz/B-Driven Sports for providing Tommy B. headbands for each participant! Thank you Scott Ballard/Skyline Specs, Scott Edelbrock, and Abigail Gans for your gracious contributions with fun Tommy B. sunglasses and great photography. Thank you Blackberry Ridge for your hospitality and service. Lastly, thank you to the various people and companies that donated wonderful door prizes and silent auction items! 

We will be forever thankful to every person and company who donated, participated, and supported the Tom Bearson Foundation’s goals and events since tragedy struck our family in September 2014. 

Thank you from the Tom Bearson Foundation and Bearson family.

Thank You, Sponsors!
